If making sweet potato fries, follow the instructions in the blog post to prepare the fries and sauce. They will take longer than the burgers to cook, so make them first.
Place a cast iron or non-stick skillet on your stove top. Add enough oil to generously coat the surface and heat to medium (about 1 tablespoon).
While the skillet is heating, form burger patties. To do so, add the meat and seasonings to a mixing bowl and knead until well-combined. Divide the meat into two to four portions - for 1/2-pound burgers, divide the meat in half, for 1/3-pound burgers, divide the meat into thirds, etc. Form a ball out of one portion of the meat. Press the meat into a disc, making sure it has uniform thickness throughout so that it cooks evenly.
Carefully place the burger patties on the hot skillet, giving them at least 1 inch of space between for even cooking. Note: To avoid fat and oil splatter, place a fine mesh splatter screen over the skillet.
Cook 3 minutes, or until the first side is browned and crispy. Carefully flip and cook another 3 minutes. Continue cooking and flipping every one to two minutes, until burgers reach desired done-ness. For medium-rare burgers, cook burgers a total of 6 minutes. For medium, 7 to 8, and for well-done burgers, 9 to 10 minutes total.
Load up each bowl with mixed greens, grated carrot, pickled beets, sauerkraut, avocado, sweet potato fries, and green onion. Add 1 to 2 burger patties (depending on size of patty and hunger level). Drizzle bowls with chipotle dipping sauce and enjoy!
